hey guys!. glad to finally be on here and say that it is a great site and a great sense of community that i cant wait to have backing me up if i have trouble.
a little about my 1998 forest green Riv with 82k miles (owned for four years now and slowly making improvements.)

amped out trunk audio from stock head unit, now that was a fun mod!
K&N filter in stock box
18" Opal Konig Crosshairs wrapped in Kumho Ecsta Spt rubber (pics up soon)

as soon as the insurance goes back on after winter storage plan to stimulate the economy by

coolant flush and fill
tranny flush filter fill
spark plugs/wire set (does anyone run the NGK Iridiums or is it Autolite 104's all the way around? any reccomendations on wire sets? Differences?) comments? suggestions?
brake upgrades
fluid swap
akebono performance pads
Disc Italia rotors slotted OR Powerslot Cryo rotors

then the slush fund is gone! especially if i buy this little '96 regal coupe with 90k on it for $1500 near me for winter car.

thanks to all who respond with comments or suggestions!

keep it real, keep it Riv -- Joel in Wisco

Welcome! Yes, I am sure that there will be help for almost anything you like here.
I have this page hung in my favorites... http://rivperformance.editboard.com/series-ii-engine-transmission-f4/series-ii-supercharged-write-ups-t679.htm
I hadn't been here in a while (working 70+ hrs wk) but they have cut my hours now, so I hope to be a little more active here.
I agree with 98riviera98 ..... Post pics!

Welcome! If you aren't heavily modding your motor, I'd stick with a plug more like the Autolite 605(copp) or AP605 (plat), don't go any colder than that, there's no gain. No experience with NGKs except for a few bad ones personally, but people mostly run autolites because it's so easy to change heat ranges, etc, just by numbers.

Welcome to the forum, joelio!
I had a'96' dark green and love the green colors. It had a lot of miles on it and I was able to find a '98' pearl white with only 46K miles on it for really reasonable price. I did have a double teal pin stripe put on it and green dice valve stem caps. I also did a recent brake job and painted the calipers the seafoam green color of my '65' Riv, a subtle touch.... wink
